Warner Brothers has released the first trailer for acclaimed Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón's latest film, Gravity (2013), starring Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, and Basher Savage. The film is set to open in theaters across the United States on October 4th.
Official synopsis: Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
Can't wait! Sandra Bullock in something that actually might be good may take some time to get used to. Cuaron is a talented director though, and drifting off alone into space is a simple but cool, potentially frightening premise.
I don't really understand what this is going to be about from the trailer, but a description said something about them adrift in space and if that's correct then it sounds like Futurama episode "Godfellas" which would make a grey full length movie.
This movie is based on the Ray Bradbury short story, Kaleidoscope (from The Illustrated Man).
Astronauts out on EVA encounter meteor strikes, destroying their ships and sending the crew hurtling off in different directions.
This film IMO will be more mental/emotional than action. This scene will be brief and a lot of this movie is going to be us staring at the actors faces, stars etc...
Re: The sound we hear. Yeah no sound in space, but for commercial appeal, most people need to hear the booms.
